Hybrid Electrically Conductive Sewing Threads and Stretchable Ribbons for Smart Textile- based Health Care Applications
The lecture deals with R&D in smart
textiles products based on newly developed hybrid electrically conductive
sewing threads, stretchable ribbons and new interconnection technology suitable
esp. for healthcare and homecare applications.
The fabricated smart textile prototypes such as heated bedlinen, smart bedlinen, smart T-shirt showed good performance during laboratory and field testing.
The developed hybrid threads and interconnection technology can be used also in other applications such as embroidered textile temperature sensor for smart protective firefighter suit.
